I came in last week with 4 groupons. The doughnuts I was picking up were for us to give out to Police and FireFighters to thank them for their service to our community, so none of it was for me. I had to wait in line a long time, and I understand since it was the last day that the... More

It's a good distance from my home but it is worth the drive. The lit "Hot Donuts" sign alone is worth it, seems to bring out the kid in me! The best donuts in the state. It is important to establish your donut limit before going in, leaving some for the next trip is always a great idea. ENJOY! Good... More

Staff are friendly, and doughnuts are amazing! We really enjoy getting a morning treat from KK! The only thing going inside is, be prepared for the smell. It IS an open work area where they cook the doughnuts using metal equipment so it will smell as such.

The classic HOT Krispy Kreme Doughnut is what I usually stop here for. Try to keep yourself from eating more than just one of those babies, just try - You are probably NOT going to succeed. Also try the chocolate iced kreme - my other favorite there. Not a big fan of the others - they're good, but can't beat... More

Wonderful delicious HOT doughnuts - not much more needs to be said. The coffee is NOT the best thing as the new owners might think - we need the HOT doughnuts and the creme puffs!

Best time to go is when the hot now sign is lit and then highly recommend the original. They melt in your mouth. Good coffee as well. Fun for kids to watch the donuts being made and going through the curtain of glaze.

We visited on a Thursday night around 9pm. The kids and adults loved watching the production of hot, fresh doughnuts from start to finish. The pastrStaff were very friendly and helpful. It was very busy the evening we went, but the booths and counter space were kept immaculately clean. We decided it's a new family tradition whenever we visit Raleigh!

Dropped off the daughter around the corner for the SAT so we took advantage of the hot donuts sign. What a great way to start a Saturday. Watching the donuts be made is icing on the cake. It's hard to beat a hot Krispy Kreme fresh off the line. Service was excellent and employees were extremely pleasant.

Light, airy, scrumptious, and irresistable! This location makes the donuts right there in front of you. Breakfast, afternoon treat, or late night indulgence... I crave these things!
